We have a get together of the South Indian Yezdi/Jawa clubs known as Southern Raid. During the first raid, I took along a pillion and was doing 95K when I left the throttle to die on a incline and instantly the bike seized, the damage was done at that point and this resulted in poor compression thereafter. I managed to ride the bike till date without any such misfortune though but the performance of the bike came down.

Limited stock of IPL Pistons are available here at an old shop. Retailing @ 1.2k per set these days. Including rings. Only JAWA/YEZDI. No RoadKing ones though. I've already stocked up almost all sizes for my Jawa.

Greetings to All!

Greetings to all,
A word of advice, to those who are in Kerala, and need to restore their JAWA / Yezdi, CL II, RKs.
1.Try to speak to my contacts.
2. Mention what you have on your mind, quality & scope of restore.
3.The existing condition of your YEZDI/JAWA/RK. ( Send PICs )
4. Ask for a Quote, in written, parts cost, date of delivery. ( It Takes time to build these bikes )
5. Should you need to travel to Bangalore, go by Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation Bus, for Ernakulam South City Bus Terminal. ( Book On Line , evening Bus )
6. Pre Book Hotel accommodation in Bangalore.
7. Meet the Mechanic in person. Accomplish the purpose of your visit.
8. Head back to shanthinagar bus station (double road), Evening Bus service.
9. Load your Spares, under ( Bus has large storage space, lower deck )
10. Very Important, if it is your bike parts, carry the copy of the RC Book, Purchase parts bill from the mechanic in Bangalore. ( In case they check the bus Cargo )
11. Make a plan, receive info about the parts, ask for a quote, pay once you receive the parts, DO NOT PAY INTO ANY ACCOUNT BEFORE YOU GET YOUR HANDS ON THE PARTS.
12. carry a copy of the quote with you. Charge your mobile before you leave your home.
13. Never Pay cash, if the amount is big, pay into the Bank Account Only after delivery.

You can PM me any time, I can get you some more info, in case I have missed out on some.
Restoration, will make you shed blood, sweat & tears- so have a very strong will power and give it your best shot. I have never looked back, the going is getting better each day!

regards to all,
Joe De Nazareth

Hello Joe
Nice to see one more Yezdi coming up nicely.
As far as the spare part prices you have shared, it looks high though they look very original. Please share the source if you could.

Does a single tire & tube cost Rs 4.5k ? (Is the pattern the original one with lines), I think I have to drop the idea of buying one !.

Please let me know if you need any help in Mysore.

Hi ! Ananth,

Greetings to you!

I have been on this site for a long time, could not join the crowd but had access to see & learn a LOT of stuff about automobile Engineering and came upon your YEZDI restore.
I was motivated by the quality and detail of your Yezdi CL II restore.

Yes! your guess is right. The price that I am paying is HIGH.
You can see my Friend Anand in Blue Shirt, he too is a Roadking Fanatic, he too said the same, but we have no other source to get us Genuine parts. And so end up getting parts from a Local Supplier, who has genuine spares, but he is very expensive.
I am looking for a STOCK RK, with a STD Bore, never mind the pain condition. Just need a running RK, with a SMOOTH GEARBOX, I can take it from there.

YES! The front Tyres , MRF rib was not available, but I got one from the same guy.
I prefer not to take his name here, at this point in time.
I come to India, for a week, 3 ~ 4 times in a year and that makes my restore very slow.

How much does a RK, full Restore cost in MYSORE?

I am looking for a back carrier for the YEZDI.

Thanks for asking, Keep in touch!

Kind regards,
Joe

Arrow Yezdi - D250 Classic Restoration

Guys,

Just started the restoration process of my Yezdi D250 Classic. Urgently, need your suggestion.

What will be approximate cost of painting the bike. Below is the cost quoted by the mechanic.

Normal Painting (Black) 7000/-
Heat Treated Painting (Black) 13500/-
Chroming 7000/-
Tinkering 2000/-

I am finding the price astronomical. Please need your suggestions.

First of all post a pic of your bike, that way people can guage if you need a lot of tin work and suggest.

Heat treated paint sounds like powder coating, its expensive but at 18 INR a running feet, should stay below 5k for the whole bike + bits and bobs.

The tank needs to be painted seprately, should cost you between 3-5K. Ask him to scrape it to bare metal and then start from there, that way you can ensure the finish is top notch and its not hiding any gremlins under a coat of paint.

Take other quotes as well, while taking quotes be little lavish, tell them money is not an issue. They open up when you say that, Remember motivating your bike builder is as important as motivating yourself for the build. even if you put 20k into in you will have something which would turn heads, remember quality does not come cheap.

PS: so far i have spent 10k on painting my tank, side pannels, headlight stay, chasis, swing arm and Dome in my RD

I think that "Normal painting" means just spray and leave to dry. "Heat treated paint" means spray and bake.

My suggestion is that you pay special attention to the tank to ensure that there is no rust inside. Spending a lot of money on Chrome plating and painting the tank only to find out a few months later that it is leaking because of rust would be a shame.

Another suggestion is that you could have the frame and non-cosmetic parts of the bike powder coated in gloss black polyester powder (not epoxy powder). Ensure that the correct pre-treatment process (shot blasting, acid cleaning, phosphating, etc.) are done before powder coating. Done properly, powder coating will protect and embelish the frame better than liquid paint would.

Good luck with the restoration!
